Calling all Muscle Warriors … on behalf of The Muscle Help Foundation, we’d love you to come along and be part of a rather special experience.

Michael will be carrying the Paralympic flame on Wed 29th August at approx 19.14hrs from Lee Valley Ice Centre.

This is one day before the launch of the charity’s flagship 2012 Games Inspired Muscle Dreams programme that’s going to change the lives of 75 beneficiaries from across the UK!

He will be carrying the flame as a symbol of hope, strength and joy for the charity’s Muscle Dream beneficiaries (past, present & future) and their families.

Thanks to Etac UK’s power-chair technology, Michael plans to wheel the 130 metres in the upright/standing position … with flame outstretched!

To witness this unique spectacle … please bring your voices, your cameras and your flags to help celebrate Michael’s moment!

The Lee Valley Ice Centre is situated in the Lee Valley Regional Park in Leyton, London.
